chicks_of_the_sea

This Wednesday April 1st, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Bunny Necklace AND Egg Hunt!  
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials to put a spring in your step!  

Want to find an egg with a TREAT in it? I hope so, because I’ve got some treats, and I got some eggs, and we’ll have a small auxiliary spring time game for you to play. An egg is waiting for each crafter, and what’s in it will be a token of CraftNight’s appreciation just for you!

Our main craft is an Easter bunny necklace that will be a hit at any Easter appointment you’ll be attending this Sunday. Spring is for bunnies, lambs and chicks, it’s for tiny shoots of grass and puffy clouds, and blue skies! It’s for cleaning out your spice cabinet, getting rid of old stuff in your drawers and getting new spiffy clothing for running around outside! You can officially pack up all that cold weather stuff, LA is warming up and gearing up for funshine.

EXTRA CRAFT: Tissue paper flowers for the upcoming WEDDING RECEPTION! From this point until the April 22nd, every CraftNight will be making tissue paper flowers for the festivities (in addition to that week’s craft of course)! You’re invited to help us out! Come and volunteer your hand at an old art!

UPCOMING
April 26th >>> Your Craft Captain is getting married, come to the reception at AKBAR!!! Bring your friends and celebrate Lesbian LOVE! There will be karaoke from 8 to 10, dancing, drink specials, lesbian antics, entertainment and legally wedded bliss. 8:30pm until 1:45am Woooo!!!!
APRIL 27th, 8pm, AKBAR >>> Bet Yer Bottom Bingo!!! Big Bottles of Booze and other prizes, it’s your night of 50 cent bingo cards and a chance to win EXCITING ITEMS!!!

Ant Plane Caterpillar: Choose! • March 18th, 2015

the_latest_thing

This Wednesday March 18th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Noteholders in THREE varieties! Ant, Plane, Caterpillar! 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials! Your Springtime Cocktail Headquarters. 

Don’t just stand there like a ninny with your notes in your hands, MAKE A NOTE HOLDER!
You’ll have three different possibilities:

ADORABLE ANTS - Ants are associated with diligence, cooperation and industry. They can also stand for social conformity and mass action. This one is a twee little kit with puffballs and googly eyes, a clip and a magnet for you to attach to the ant. It works! It’s an ant, it’s very anty.

PLEASING PLANES - Say you want your notes to be held in a higher consciousness, this plane note holder is perfect for that! Remind yourself daily of the aspirations you have and new heights to which you are headed! The plane note holders are red, yellow and blue, and are just the sort of bright thing to brighten up a fridge or dungeon lair.

CUDDLY CATERPILLARS - If you want your note holder to carry an aura that signifies an era of change, this is the one for you. People come to Los Angeles to become themselves, and this note holder can remind you daily that you manifest each day as you choose. Comes with a leaf for the caterpillar to sit on, it’s a real humdinger!

Wooden Disguises • March 11th, 2015

damonna

This Wednesday March 11th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Wooden Disguises for Your Exotic, Mysterious Life! 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials, everyone gets more lovely with each sip! 

You see someone walking down the street that you do NOT want to see. There are no trashcans or cars or walls for you to duck behind, they are walking toward you, leaning forward, searching for recognition. Quick! Rustle around in your rucksack and pull out your trusty disguise, it’s made of wood, and it looks like a robot, kitty, puppy or butterfly! Expertly you hide your face behind the themed facade, and the opposite party shrugs and walks on by thinking “Huh, to think it could’ve been…”

You will fool anybody and everybody with this wooden disguise mask. Reconnaissance has never been this easy! Fool someone into thinking you aren’t in the room, go incognito to avoid press detection, go undercover in your city to fight for justice!

In other news, it’s NATIONAL CRAFT MONTH so we’re kicking up our heels and feeling rather snazzy, having been at the Craft Table for going on 13 years now, how about that? There will be small but mighty surprises for March’s CraftNight crafters, mark my words.

Other March highlights are: Irish-American Heritage Month, Quinoa Month, National Frozen Food Month and “Mad for Plaid” Month.

Coming Up
• March 24th >>> Bet Yer Bottom Bingo! 8pm – 10pm [Girls, Boys, Balls, Booze, Prizes!]
* April 26th >>> Your Craft Captain is getting married, come to the reception at AKBAR!!! Bring your friends and celebrate Lesbian LOVE! There will be karaoke from 8 to 10, dancing, drink specials, lesbian antics, entertainment and legally wedded bliss. 8:30pm until 1:45am Woooo!!!!

Bingo then CraftNight for End o’ February 2015

craftbingo_feb

TUESDAY February 24th from 8pm – 10pm at Akbar it’s BET YER BOTTOM BINGO!!! 50 Cents a card!
PREMIUM TICKET GIVEAWAYS for our WINNERS, OMG!!!!
• Tickets to the “Queen of Mean” insult stand up comic, Lisa Lampanelli (Racy! Controversial!) at Club Nokia
• Tickets to Dan Savage’s Hump!  The Dan Savage-curated film festival of sex-positive dirty movies made by regular ol’ people in every color of the rainbow doing all kinds of sexy things!
****And of course we also have our usual prizes: Big Bottles o’ Booze, T-shirts, Drink Tickets, and unique JP-picked Premiums that you simply must have…

WEDNESDAY February 25th, 2015 is CraftNight from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, your neighborhood oasis!
Project: WINTER GRAB BAG
$3 Processing Fee, Please
$4 Drink Specials for your ultimate winter cocktail sipping plans

If a voice is telling you to hesitate before coming in to Bingo or CraftNight this week, try to ignore it. I mean, obviously, if you have the big presentation tomorrow or your leg is broken or whatever, that’s different. But if you’re being namby pamby for no good reason and keeping yourself from giving yourself a wonderful evening: don’t!

You deserve some time of living spontaneously, trying your luck at bingo, making crafts with bohemians and troublemakers, freeing up your spirit to cultivate new friendships and join lively conversations. It’s the 21st century, oh yes it is, but people still seek out “the village tavern.”
We are not coffee, we are not bourgeois, we are beer, wine and cocktails, and we’re all sharing our oneness on the corner of Sunset and Fountain, which means your butt isn’t going to get any warmer or cuter until you visit us.

See you at the Bingo or the CraftNight,
JP Craft Captain/La Binguera
